Founder's Story

Damian Niolet - Airman turned pacifist

Despite a $100K a year salary, benefits-a-plenty, guaranteed promotions and raises, and a hefty retirement check for life, It was at the halfway mark - 10 years - that I experienced a crisis of conscience and knew I could no longer faithfully serve in the U.S. Air Force.  In fact, I quickly discovered I could no longer serve in any capacity that enabled warfare.  Entrepreneurship proved the only solution for actively countering, as a conscientious objector or pacifist, the mechanisms of escalating violence, which lead up to warfare and are embedded in so many of our systems.  Make no mistake about it, entrepreneurship is about innovative and peaceful disruption, and "Inked for Peace" is all about changing the prevailing view of the utility of body art and more importantly the inevitability of peace.

Why Tattoos?

EXTRACTED FROM the founder's blog

Tell a Compelling Story

They say, "A picture says a thousand words," but a tattoo tells a couple hundred more.

Show Commitment to that Story

Courage is triumph over perceived fear, while commitment is triumph over certain pain.

Serve as Reminders of that Story

There's nothing like a strategically placed tattoo to get people talking.
